I know this must be easy but here it goes.  I have a db grid that I am running various sql statements as data1 recordsource.  This works fine. all I really want to be able to do is at one point make the datagrid so it is not bound to a datacontrol by pressing a button or by using a if then statement, etc

I would like to do this so i can make the datagrid blank, also I want to make it so the table in the database is not bound to any control in VB.  

Idea's?

You can use the GetRows function of an RDO Resultset to pass the resultset into an Array.

then the Grid Will be blank until you decide that you want to fill it with data.

It is a simple matter of using a Do while Loop to Build the Grid as you like.

dim x as long
dim li_Row as Long
Dim li_Col as integer

x = UBound(TheArray(2))-1  'The number of columns
                          'Do This here instead of inside
                          'first loop, otherwise VB has to
                          'Calculate the 'RowCount' for every row

For y = 0 to UBound(TheArray(1))
   For li_col = 0 to x      
     'Assign Whatever Cell you want = TheArray(li_Row,li_col)
   Next y
Next y

The other King thing about the Unbound it that it doesn't add an extra connection<For Each Data Control> to the Server, since these connections arent free.  If your app is multi user.. this can make a big difference.  
Also, since you don't have to open a new connectiont to the database for a Control, Your form probably will load faster, making for a snappy appearance.
